If the forum is supposed to be solely for tech issues and newbie queries, fine. I'll stop posting completely. I've yet to see that as the written policy or get any warnings about it.

and it STILL doesn't address the point i'm making: Why can't tech issues, newbie questions or anything else for that matter co-exist w/postings about the Dead? Where in the world is the harm? If you see a posting about a Dead question and aren't interested, don't read it. Move on and post your own question.

Plus, the majority of Dead postings I have seen are in fact related directly to the archive b/c when someone asks a question about the best version of this or that song, they are more often than not directed to the very show that exists here in the archive. I have found dozens of great song versions based on threads from this forum. That's not pointless talk about best this or worst that...it's information that leads directly to what this site offers: great live music.

I tend to agree w the DeadHeads here ... a sort survival of the fittest scenario is happening here ... non DeadHeads should see this as a challenge: Represent Yourselves and Your Bands. We'll listen to you and your bands, we're not as closed minded as we sometimes come across. This may sound cocky, but without the Dead it's likely than most other bands may not have adopted similar taping and trading policies. This LMA might not even exit (can't wait for the back-lash on that one!). Recall the story that Jerry told us about how he taped a Bill Monroe concert - hell, he was the first taper!

OtherHeads : represent Yourselves!

BTW, this here LMA was in Time Magazine this week... we should probably feel the effects this weekend.

Really? Just a blurb or what?

Brad - Barely a blurb... it's their Great Inventions issue... talks about the new accessibility of music on line; mentions ETree/Archive specifically - also mentions the Grateful Dead specifically. I'll look at it again tonight. Have a good Thursday. - Brian

read it at the bottom of this page:


ARCHIVE.ORG/AUDIO/ETREE.PHP The Live Music Archive is where hard-core fans go to find high-quality live recordings. It is a "noncommercial" (meaning free and legal) service, but many big acts turn up on the site, including Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz and the Grateful Dead.

very well put gc! i too have not read that the forum is simply for tech questions/newbies/etc. that seems to me to be counterproductive to what the LMA stands for (at least in my opinion). the etree forum should be about the music - but i do agree that it should be in reference to bands/shows that are on the archive. Diana's "best cheese sandwich in the parking lot" comment is very valid. those are ridiculous inquiries which should be on another site's forum. but to bounce back and forth between between the archive and another fan site just to find out a good clean version of a GD song seems somewhat foolish since this is the site which holds the music.
and what if I want a good clean soulful version of Kimock's "tongue n groove"?? do i have to search out a fansite forum for kimock just to ask a simmple question that can be answered (hopefully) here?
- by the way - the "tongue n groove" from 07/01/05 is about as gorgeous as it gets.


also - i may be "dead" wrong, but it seems to me that the only people who have been pointing me in other band's directions are the same people who are posting GD strings. (case in point - the current bluegrass with drums etree forum string). Like Simard said - OtherHeads need to promote their bands here. There is nothing more refreshing musically than discovering a new, beautiful sound.
